      Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

      I am a student at the Institute of Mass Communication and Media Research (IPMZ) University of Zurich. As part of my Master's thesis, I am conducting a survey on how climate change bloggers’ perceive themselves and their role in the climate change debate.

      If you blog about climate change, I would like to ask you to participate in my survey. Your contribution will help us to gain valuable insights into the field of climate change blogging.

      Link to the survey: http://ww2.unipark.de/uc/landolt_Universit__t_Z__rich/64cf/

      The questionnaire will take about 7 minutes to fill out.
      There are no right or wrong answers. I am interested in your personal opinion.
      The study does not serve any commercial purpose. The data provided is solely for the purpose of scientific analysis and is evaluated anonymously.
      The questionnaire can be filled out in English and German.
      Please feel free to contact me if there are further questions or comments.

      Angela Landolt B.A.


      Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren

      Im Rahmen meiner Masterarbeit am Institut für Publizistikwissenschaft und Medienforschung (IPMZ) der Universität Zürich führe ich eine Befragung über das Selbstverständnis von Klimawandelbloggern durch.

      Falls Sie über den Klimawandel bloggen, möchte ich Sie bitten an meiner Befragung teilzunehmen. Sie leisten damit einen wesentlichen Beitrag dazu, Erkenntnisse über Ihr Tätigkeitsfeld zu gewinnen, an denen es bislang noch mangelt.

      Link zur Befragung: http://ww2.unipark.de/uc/landolt_Universit__t_Z__rich/64cf/

      Das Ausfüllen des Fragebogens dauert etwa 7 Minuten.
      Es gibt keine richtigen oder falschen Antworten. Ich bin an Ihrer persönlichen Meinung interessiert.
      Die Studie dient keinem kommerziellen Zweck. Die Daten dienen ausschliesslich dem Zweck einer wissenschaftlichen Analyse und werden anonym ausgewertet.
      Sie können den Fragebogen auf Deutsch oder auf Englisch ausfüllen.
      Bei Fragen oder Hinweisen können Sie sich gerne bei mir melden.

      The GreenHouse Effect Anti-Theory

      By reflecting away 30% of the incoming solar energy the atmosphere/albedo makes the earth cooler than it would be without the atmosphere much like that reflective panel behind a car’s windshield.
      Greenhouse theory has it wrong.

      The non-radiative processes of a contiguous participating media, i.e. atmospheric molecules, render ideal black body LWIR from the surface impossible. The 396 W/m^2 upwelling from the surface is a “what if” theoretical calculation without physical reality. (refer to: TFK_bams09)
      Greenhouse theory has it wrong.

      Without the 396 W/m^2 upwelling there is no 333 W/m^2 GHG energy up/down/”back” loop to “warm” the earth. (refer to: TFK_bams09)
      Greenhouse theory has it wrong.

      Man caused climate change is negated by these three points. Hysterical speculations over sea levels, ice caps, glaciers, extreme weather, etc. are irrelevant noise.

      Zero greenhouse effect, Zero CO2 global warming and Zero man caused climate change.


      One popular geoengineering strategy proposed for countering imaginary global warming/climate change is through reducing net solar heating by increasing the earth’s albedo.

      This increase is accomplished by various physical methods, e.g. injecting reflective aerosols into the atmosphere, spraying water vapor into the air to enhance marine cloud brightening, spreading shiny glass spheres around the poles with the goal of more reflection thereby reducing the net amount of solar energy absorbed by the atmosphere and surface and cooling the earth.

      More albedo and the earth cools.

      Less albedo and the earth warms.

      No atmosphere means no water vapor or clouds, ice, snow, vegetation, oceans and near zero albedo and much like the moon the earth bakes in that 394 K, 121 C, 250 F solar wind.

      These geoengineering plans rely on the atmosphere cooling the earth thereby exposing the error of greenhouse theory which says the atmosphere warms the earth and with no atmosphere the earth becomes a -430 F frozen ball of ice.

      Zero greenhouse effect, Zero CO2 global warming and Zero man caused climate change.

      Space – the Hotter Frontier

      One of the heated issues underlying greenhouse theory is whether space is hot or cold.

      Greenhouse theory says that without an atmosphere the earth would be exposed to a near zero outer space and become a frozen ice ball at -430 F, 17 K.

      Geoengineering techniques that increase the albedo, the ISS’s ammonia refrigerant air conditioners, an air conditioner in the manned maneuvering unit, space suits including thermal underwear with chilled water tubing, UCLA Diviner lunar data and Kramm’s models (Univ of AK) all provide substantial evidence that outer space is relatively hot.

      But outer space is neither hot nor cold.

      By definition and application temperature is a relative measurement of the molecular kinetic energy in a substance, i.e. solid, liquid, gas. No molecules (vacuum), no temperature. No kinetic energy (absolute zero), no temperature. In the void & vacuum of outer space the terms temperature, hot, cold are meaningless, like dividing by zero, undefined. Same reason there is no sound in space – no molecules.

      However, any substance capable of molecular kinetic energy (ISS, space walker, satellite, moon, earth) placed in the path of the spherical expanding solar photon gas at the earth’s average orbital distance will be heated per the S-B equation to an equilibrium temperature of: 1,368 W/m^2 = 394 K, 121 C, 250 F.

      Like a blanket held up between a camper and campfire the atmosphere reduces the amount of solar energy heating the terrestrial system and cools the earth compared to no atmosphere.

      This intuitively obvious as well as calculated and measured scientific reality refutes the greenhouse theory.

      Zero greenhouse effect, Zero CO2 global warming and Zero man caused climate change.


      Since the earth is actually hotter without an atmosphere, radiative greenhouse effect goes straight into the historical trash bin of failed theories and all the handwavium, pseudo-science, thermodynamic nonsense pretending to explain it follows close behind.

      If my anti-theorem is incorrect why so and how so, bring science.
      If my anti-theorem is correct contemplate the consequences.

        I’d be intereted to know your thoughts on what I wa taught in schools about the greenhouse effect in School over 50 years ago.

        1. the sun warms the atmosphere and the earth.
        2. heat is radiated from the earth back towards space
        3. The atmosphere reflects the heat back towards earth
        4. The accumulated effect keeps the atmosphere warmer than it would otherwise be (hense the use of the term “greenhouse”).
        5. The greenhouse effect is necessary for life. Without it we would freeze to death.
